The Impact of Aerobic Fitness and Self-perceived Stress on Academic Performance in Junior High School Students
參考文獻 ( 30 )Purpose: The study was to investigate the relationship among aerobic fitness, self-perceived stress and academic performance, and to compare the difference of various aerobic fitness and self-perceived stress levels on academic performance. Method: There were 369 9th grade students (196 boys and 173 girls registered in 2012, the average age was 15yrs) were recruited as the subjects of this study. The aerobic fitness test (800M and 1600M walk-run test for female and male students, respectively) and the Chinese version of self-perceived stress scale questionnaire were administrated within one month before the first sectional academic exam. The Chinese, English and the Math grade were used as the indicator of academic performance. The collected data were used for comparison and analysis by Pearson's product-moment correlation, one way ANOVA and 2 way ANOVA. Results: (1) The students' academic performance has a significant positive correlation with aerobic fitness and self-perceived stress. (2) The academic performance of students who had better aerobic fitness were significantly better than that of poor fitness students (p＜.05). (3) With moderate-level of self-perceived stress, the students' academic performance were significantly better than that of higher or lower-level of self-perceived stress students. (4) The students who had better aerobic fitness and moderate-level of self-perceived stress demonstrated the best academic performance than other combined groups (p＜.05). Conclusion: According to this research, it found that junior high school students' academic performance were obviously effected by aerobic fitness and self-perceived stress. Furthermore, the positive advantages of aerobic fitness on academic performance would be changed by different stress situation. Only under the moderate self-perceived stress condition the students who had better aerobic fitness were significantly better than that of the poor fitness.
